How can I capture RTP packets from youtube?


I am not able to catch RTP packets from youtube. I have tried checking "Try to decode RTP outside of conversions", but it didnt help. I tried decoding UDP packet as RTP. After decoding, I am not able to do RTP stream analysis.

As far as I know, Youtube is not using RTP anywhere (they stream their videos via HTTP), so that's the reason why you can't decode it.

If you think they use RTP, please post a link to that video.
